Soviet Electric at Koupio, Finland.

I visited a variety of cities on my travels in Finland in early September 2001. One dull afternoon I was in Koupio changing trains.

An express passenger train was due in from Helsinki, so I made my way to the west-end of the station platform where I exposed this view of a 1970s-era Soviet-built Sr1 electric.

Using my Rollei model T, I opted for a low-angle to add a sense of drama to the arriving train. My primary interest was this relic of Soviet railway technology, so I allowed it to get as close as possible before releasing the shutter.
